Admission as an International Student
To be admitted, international students must submit to Undergraduate Admissions in the Office of Enrollment Services: (1) the International Student Undergraduate Admission Application; (2) official records of previous educational experiences; (3) evidence of proficiency in the English language, official scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the Michigan Examination, or other approved test of English proficiency (a minimum score of 500 is required on the TOEFL, 5.0 on the IELTS, and a minimum score of 82 is required on the Michigan Examination); (4) official verification of financial resources; and (5) a $30 application fee. International students should apply at least four months before the semester or term of enrollment. To assist in the proper placement of students in the areas of English, mathematics, science and social studies, all entering freshmen must take the ACT exam upon arrival unless valid ACT or SAT scores are on file. Entering transfer students with fewer than 24 semester hours of credit completed may be asked to take the ACT exam for the same reasons. Students with an ACT composite score of 19 or higher will be considered proficient in all areas. Students who do not have a 19 composite ACT will be placed in the appropriate level course according to the subject area subscores.
Students transferring to the University from an accredited institution of higher education in the United States, must submit: (1) the International Student Undergraduate Admission Application; (2) an official transcript from the institution from which they are transferring; (3) official verification of financial resources; and (4) a $30 application fee.
Transfer of Credits. Credits earned from international institutions will be considered only after they have been evaluated by the World Education Services, Inc., Web site: www.wes.org, mailing address: P.O. Box 11623, Chicago, IL 60611-0623, e-mail: email@example.com. It is the student's responsibility to contact the agency and pay all service fees.
Students who have earned fewer than 24 semester hours must submit ACT or SAT scores and high school and college transcripts to facilitate appropriate advising and placement.
